Popout chat should allow calling, video, and screen sharing like normal chat window
The popout chat window should allow calling, video, and screen sharing just like the normal full Teams client window. It is not efficient to have to go back to the Teams client and search for a person to be able to start a call, video, or screen share from someone you are chatting with in a popout window.
Just so people know. The latest update with Pop-out meetings, includes this update.

I agree this update is needed.
Agree - this would be a small but very welcome improvement in the usability of the popout chat window.

The pop-out feature is terrific but without the ability to initiate a call, creates needless additional effort. Also, in Outlook, one can now initiate a Team chat using the IM icon under a person's profile (nice!) - however that launches the chat in the pop-out window which does not then give me an opportunity to start at call in Teams.
